Activities 

Managing your health when you are grieving can be a daunting task to undertake. While you may still be processing the loss in your own way, there are probably other heavy emotions and feelings that you were dealing with as a result. While it can seem like a hopeless effort when trying to heal from your grief, we promise that it is not as difficult as it may seem. With a little effort, anyone can manage to heal through their grief in their own way. One of the first things that we recommend people do is participate in some sort of activity. Whether you have hobbies or interests or have never taken up a hobby before in your life, we recommend using this time to really immerse yourself in something new and exciting. While you may not feel motivated to begin a new activity, it is proven that learning something new promotes feelings of positivity and happiness in the brain. If you are worried about trying a new activity alone, that we recommend asking a friend or family member to tag along with you so that you have emotional support during this time as well. In terms of an activity to take up, some ideas can include things like riding bikes, swimming, exercising, learning an instrument, or even going for walks. 

Talk 

When people experience a loss, it is common for some to choose to withdraw rather than lean toward others for emotional support. While it may feel safe and comforting to isolate yourself, this will only serve to worsen things overtime. If you would like to make true progress, then it is required that you open up and speak to others, whether that be a friend or a family member. While it can feel awkward to open up initially, the more you begin expressing your feelings and vulnerability with someone else, the easier it will become overtime. Additionally, regularly expressing your feelings can eventually lead to an improved mood and feelings of well-being.

Laugh

Similar to the point above, laughing is a great way to reduce stress and make yourself smile during such a difficult time in your life. We recommend surrounding yourself with those that make you happy and laugh so that you can begin healing in your grief rather than isolating yourself and not making any progress.
